Just had mine too...I think I'm more in the continual-stomach-anxiety state than the relief-at-it-being-done state.

Friday is the perfect day for JS2's! (and more JS1's!)

I'm still hoping that there will be a URM wave... It seems there weren't many who got JS1s from the waitlist, but I could be wrong.

Agreed! Fingers crossed for more URM JS1s (and especially 2s)

Someone earlier had said they had one at 8AM. I'm guessing if any JS2's come out today, it'll be in the PM.

Haha...hmm I can't find the 8AM one anymore...but looking back over the thread someone did say "Friday AM". Either way, I'm guessing PM is the earliest for JS2s...So how shall we pass the time

Hi, it's me. They would call me between 9am-10am, so I will be having my js1 in one hour. It's 8 o'clock in the evening here...

Pretty anxious to hear one way or another so I can know what I'm doing next year. Today will go by slowly. If i remember correctly they have made weekend calls in the past though. Hope your call goes great deluxe!

15 reported JS1's so far in the WL wave.

Just for the record.

I definitely agree that today in the afternoon (after 1pm or so) is the earliest we might hear something. I'm optimistic for Friday JS2s, if only because it would make this weekend that much more awesome.

Hmm...a bit higher than previous ones, which averaged 10-12, but not too out of the ordinary. I wonder what caused the increase.

I think its 14 not 15...deluxe had already been counted. But yeah it is a higher than last year..but they did take a month to start the WL movement..it might have given them more time to review more files or more people using TLS

I remember seeing 16 interviews reported in the first round of waitlist interviews last year (which happened a month earlier than this year). That's coming from TLS and not LSN so maybe that explains the discrepancy.

but that included those who had prior JR1s (before the WL). All the reported interviews this time around are just from those who never had a JS1 prior to being waitlisted.

Yea, I prefer face-to-face too, but JS was a good interviewer.

Let the JS2 nervousness begin!

I think she expects us to be a little nervous..thats not a problem.

Now hopefully no one reports he/she has a JS1 scheduled for this afternoon...that would kill this friday theory.

I think this JS1 wave was also perhaps the equivalent of combined May and June waves from last year, because they've had more time to see who's withdrawing, deferring, etc. Which means EVEN less hope for those of us who didn't hear :D :D

I'm betting on this afternoon for JS2 to some people at least... I hope. Seems like the international one scheduled for this AM was just an anomaly because of time difference. For my JS1, I was quite nervous as well, but it seems that's par for the course so it shouldn't be too bad. My guess with these interviews off the WL is that they are primarily to avoid accepting someone who would not attend. At least that's what they seemed to be in the past, though perhaps JS1 has her own protocol.

I'm going to try to immerse myself in a book while sitting next to my cell phone for the rest of the day...

Just finished my JS1 and I was super nervous but she was great! I still feel like I didn't really get to convey my interests/personality/leadership enough though...

She said they're working as fast as they can, but it sounded like we may not have answers until next week :roll:

and now to start stress-eating and re-reading ASOIAF to try to distract myself...

Ugh what do they have to "work" on? They interviewed you from the waitlist - they should just accept you all! At worst, they wouldn't give 1 person of the whole wave a JS2, but even that decision wouldn't take them a whole weekend :D

Also with more interviews happening today...my hopes are diminishing... are u located in a different country?
